The reasoning model consists of the model of human motivational sphere, and of reasoning algorithms. The reasoning model is interacting with the model of communication process. The… (More)
This paper describes a computational model that we are implementing in an experimental dialogue system. Agreement negotiation process is modelled where one participant is trying to influence his/her partner to agree to do an action. Argumentation is used to direct reasoning of the partner. Our goal is to model natural dialogue where computer as a dialogue… (More)
We compare the phenomena of clausal coordinate ellipsis in Estonian, a Finno-Ugric language , and German, an Indo-European language. The rules underlying these phenomena appear to be remarkably similar. Thus, the software module ELLEIPO, which was originally developed to generate clausal coordinate ellipsis in German and Dutch, works for Estonian as well.… (More)

Estonian institutional phone calls are analyzed with the further aim to develop a human-computer dialogue system. The analysis is based on the Estonian Dialogue Corpus. Linguistic cues of yes/no questions are found out that can be used for their automatic recognition.
